Taproot 2021 Fall Programs — Finally!
I really miss your excellent Taproot Kids! I have gone back and forth and all around, hemmed and hawed, agonized and procrastinated about how to run Taproot this fall, and meanwhile the days are flying by and pretty soon there won’t be any fall left. So here’s what we’re going to do. I hope it […]
Update: Fall 2021 programming
We’re not out of the woods yet. On a Taproot excursion, that’s a good thing. But in a pandemic, not so good.

The hours are 1 to […]
